John Bolton fires up CPAC: ‘Our biggest national security crisis is Barack Obama’

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a man who would have made one hell of a secretary of state, John Bolton, helped kick off the Conservative Political Action Conference Thursday with a strong message about America’s national security.

“Our biggest national security crisis is Barack Obama,” Bolton began. “This is a president that does not believe in American exceptionalism, a president uninterested in national security and America’s place in the world, who considers our strength part of the problem, that we are the cause of international tension.”

“This is like looking at the world through the wrong end of a telescope,” he continued. “But that is Barack Obama’s world.”

Bolton touched on all the unrest from Syria to Venezuela, from Egypt to Ukraine, and added Iran was “running rings around Obama, Clinton and Kerry in nuclear arms talks.”

Showing more emotion than usual, Bolton said the attack in Benghazi was a “direct attack on the United States” and that Ambassador Chris Stevens’ murder was the “murder of the president’s personal representative in Libya.”

He continued:

And since then the president has done nothing to avenge Chris Stevens death. This is a terrible lesson for our adversaries to learn: that under Barack Obama you can murder his personal representative and get away scot-free.

We will be happy to tell Hillary Clinton in unmistakable terms ‘We know what difference it makes even if you don’t.’

Bolton called on conservatives to “return national security to the center of our political debate throughout 2014 and the presidential election of 2016,” saying Americans “do not accept an America that is weak and declining, we do not accept an American military that is weak and poorly equipped, and in particular, we do not accept an American president who is weak and indecisive and apologetic about our country.”

Ok, forget secretary of state. How about a President Bolton 2016?

    America is just becoming a third world country, and not even a republic any more, she has been brought to nothing but shame in the eyes of other countries, no longer a super power, and does not even bring a thought of strength to any of our enemies abroad, there is no respect at all for our military power or of the threat of our forces to react to any situation.

  2. Floyd Pink says:

    How dare you criticize Obama. Don’t you know he’s black? Isn’t that amazing? wow.

  3. CHARLES says:

    Yes, Corey, we no longer have any influence, as far as a military power, or as a nation that will help out other countries who are trying to think about becoming a democracy. They can not look to the USA for help. Like the way Obama has turned his back on ISRAEL, to support, terrorist.

    John Bolten is a neo-con, Zionist agent, and all around jerk.

    1. lovinspoonful says:

      He makes sense and that’s what you liberals can’t stand.

    2. Jeffrey Dorfman says:

      His speech was right on target. I only hope the U .S. can hold up till the next President takes back the America we all love and hold dear to our hearts.

  5. lovinspoonful says:

    And that is what Obama and his cronies have brought us to.

    Bolton proving (yet again) why he was unfit for the UN or any other public office in America. How shameful this CPAC conference is to the nation. Nothing but a parade of hatred, vitriol and 20th century ideology in a 21st century world. A pretty pathetic display. But it makes libs look great. In the words of my historic president, “please proceed.”

    1. Kenneth Clark says:

      I can only see that under “Common Core” your chosen name for bizpac is defined as “#2 Sheep”. Sorry #1 is already taken. It’s a tie between EliseR and Seazen.

  8. Hetero Lingo says:

    Well, if one thing’s for certain, it’s that Hussein Obama cannot be trusted.

  9. Donna Arthur says:

    John Bolten tells it exactly the way it is…. HE KNOWS! Of ALL PEOPLE, he knows, so listen up. Forget the fact that Obama is your Messiah for the moment and listen to the facts for a change! This administration is an atrocity, they get away with everything just because they like to call the race card and that’s NOT RIGHT, and you Democrats KNOW IT! It’s common sense….. and if you don’t have common sense, you’ve been living under a rock. Wake up because your country is in dire need of your attention! You need to fight for your country, not for the fact you may be a Democrat or Republican! My gosh! Is there not enough pain in the world w/o adding untruths to it about your country? FIGHT people…… FOR YOUR COUNTRY, NOT for the President. In a few years, he won’t have to live here and he’s already rich, so fear for your OWN well-being plus that of your family!

    I have not been in America for long, but I have never seen so much negativity toward the governing party from the other side of the aisle before. I have witnessed the critics of POTUS Clinton during the M. Lewinski investigation, but this time, the game has been really upped.
    Nothing, Obama does is good, he is the cause of all our ills from economic , to healthcare, to Putin invading Crimea, the fall of Mubarak, you name it!
    Bush, whom I liked personally, did his share of mistakes and I did not see that vitriol from the Democrat! 9/11 happens under his watch, the Iraq war with more than 4000 deads, the debt, the wars effort, the recession, Putin in Georgia, etc. but I did not see all this. I am a Republican-leaning independent, but I cannot understand the lack of candor . Can somebody teach me how Conservatives can do this? Or what is the rationale in all this? Thanks!
